Thyme to see an Americana Rooster

I cut out and painted this rooster weathervane
and
decided to mount it on an old cabinet door



close - up of head



tail feathers


I added a rusty wire garland
with painted stars and rusty bells I rust my own bells


crackle finish of cupboard door


I was happy with how this project turned out!
Happy Painting!
